A Schuylkill County driver was cited following a one-vehicle crash that occurred about 12:55 p.m. on Monday, March 22, along SR1003 at SR1010, in Mahanoy Township.
State police at Frackville said John Whalen, of Mahanoy City, was driving a 1989 Plymouth Voyager westbound and failed to stop at the intersection with 1010. The vehicle entered a wooded area off the road and struck several trees and came to rest.

Troopers said Whalen would be cited.
